Main South! Tomorrow! 4:30 p.m. Be there! Support Community Development Block Grants for our neighborhoods!

So important! While former Worcester City Manager Mike O’Brien bashed the federal funding program that supports urban neighborhoods and our CDC’s (major recipients of the $), the new folks at City Hall GET IT – appreciate all the good works the funds have underwritten in our city. We need more $$ for our neighborhoods – not less.

Come see all the great homes, all the great neighborhood organizations that exist in our urban neighborhoods BECAUSE OF CDBG money!

4:30 p.m.

You are cordially invited to join Mayor Joseph M. Petty and Mayor Setti Warren of Newton on a tour of the Kilby-Gardner-Hammond project

… to highlight the importance of CDBG funding.

Other mayors from across the state and federal delegation have been invited.

The tour will leave from the Higgins Center at Clark University, proceed to the Kilby-Gardner-Hammond project for a brief tour …

and then return to Lurie Hall, at Clark University for a discussion on the importance of CDBG funding for Worcester and your individual organizations.

We expect the event to take about an hour or so.
